What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information:
Our registration forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, email address, format preference (HTML vs. Text), address, interests, and similar information. This information is used to analyze trends and deliver customized, personal content. Stop Hunger Now does not share, rent, sell, or distribute our database to others. Personal information gathered by our organization is kept in confidence. Our personnel, volunteers and vendors are authorized to access personal information based only on their need to deal with the information for the reason(s) for which it was obtained. Safeguards are in place to ensure that the information is not disclosed or shared more widely than is necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was gathered. At times, donor names may be included in publications or on our website, however, addresses or other personal information are never disclosed. If a donor wishes to remain anonymous, Stop Hunger Now will gladly remove their information from such lists. Stop Hunger Now also takes measures to ensure that the integrity of this information is maintained and to prevent it from being lost or destroyed. We do not request or store sensitive information from our visitors, such as credit card or social security numbers.
